Marmorino Lime Plasters provide Venetian Styles
Marble is a metamorphic rock composed primarily of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) that is combined with slaked lime to create a lime putty (Grassello). Used since antiquity, Italian lime plasters have been part of the construction trade for decorative elements.
These plasters are graded according to the size of the marble grain from extremely fine to coarse. The finest grains have the highest sheen obtained from the polishing process and are often termed as ‘Marmorino Fine Plasters’, which are the most requested polished lime plaster finishes.

These plaster styles produce different architectural finishes, from a glass-like polish that’s very smooth, to an extremely textured surface with a varied relief.
